Having smartphones and tablets is absolutely amazing, but every once in while everybody misses that classic feel of pen on paper, where you can express yourself directly and actually feel the inscription process.
While people have been using pen and paper less and less these last few years, it remains something that will never go out of style, no matter what gadgets and gizmos come out.
This is precisely why Wacom has developed Bamboo Spark, that offers its users the best of both worlds. They can use the special pen on the special paper and then, with just a few simple taps, they can upload the content of the paper onto their tablets.
And while you might think that this is just an overpriced scanner, the Bamboo Spark comes with an amazing set of editing features, that allow the user to improve what they have written, drawn or sketched on the paper by adding that digital touch that makes wonders.
Wacom’s Bamboo Spark goes for $160, and it includes the special paper and the special pen, along with one out of three options: a tablet sleeve, a phone sleeve or the snap-fit for the iPad Air 2, so that the gadget can be in perfect contact with the digital devices it is going to be paired up with.
You can have the phone or tablet on one side and the A5 Bamboo Spark special paper on the other side, so that the feature can be accessible at all times. From paper to the Cloud, your ideas have never more easily translated into digital expression.
As for the maintenance costs of the Bamboo Spark, the ink cartridges for the special pen and the special paper are the only ones that need to be considered. A set comes with three cartridges and it costs $9.99.
This amazing gizmo can be extremely helpful for taking notes and passing them on, for writing in a classic way that can boost you inspiration or for a wide range of design assignments, because it can easily connect ideas put on pen and paper to the digital world, where they can be perfected and transformed into actual projects.
It remains to be seen just how much people miss the feel of pen on paper, when Bamboo Spark will begin to be shipped, but the concept holds tremendous potential.
